This painted wood carving of an Osprey shows it just about to leave the ground to fly. These birds of prey build their nests, a messy looking jumble of sticks, in tree tops or any other structure with ready access to water with fish. It is found on all continents except Antarctica. This basswood carving is about 16x11x2 cm, or 6x4x1 inch.

Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoy this sculpture which is entirely designed and created by myself.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I use knives and chisels, not a power carver, to finish shaping the basswood. This technique gives crisper details. It is sanded smooth, and an airbrush or watercolor brush used to apply water-based inks, with some details being burned In. It is finished with 3 coats of water-based urethane, and signed on the bottom.

Within the one inch thickness, using carving and painting techniques, I suggest a more fully round figure. It is a unique style, which I have developed over more than 30 years.

Though I use non-toxic materials, it is not designed as a toy for children.

Materials Used

wood, basswood, paint, ink, urethane finish
